Árni Magnússon noted the following on a slip of paper pasted to the front of the book: “þattr af Giafaref og Dala | fiflum sem almanniliga so | kallaz er allr contractior | enn Hrolfs saga Gautrekssonar | oc excluðerar nesten allt | um þa Norsku filkis konunga | hondlar ellers um þad sama | sem Hrolfs saga og endaz | med hennar Capite mihi. 14.”
